    Here it is. The update most everyone has been waiting for. 1.8 Keinett.

    The Update

    As most everyone knows by now from the 7-7-15 post, everything will be resetting in game, for the good of progress. It's awesome to see what all has changed over the course of the years, and how we as a community have evolved through it all, one update at a time. Now here's for the big one, 1.8.

    How long will the servers be down for?
    The server will be down between 3 to 12 hours, with individual servers coming online over the course of the next few days. Creative,Prison, and Paintball will be up within an hour of the server going back online, and a list of the servers that are online will be updated on this post.

    Will I need to reregister?
    All passwords and login info will stay the same, so when the update goes live, you'll be ready to jump in right when you log in.

    I joined the server when the update was finished but I don't have my rank?
    For some ranks, they are not able to be automatically re-added (KN Builder to be exact). Simply contact a staff member and it shall be handled as soon as we can. As for skylord, that rank will have to re-obtained. VIP/VIP+/MVP should be automatically added as usual (if not, please let us know!). Also, after a long run, old donator ranks from many years ago are finally being decommissioned, and those will not all be in the update. These are simply just not allowed anymore, and ruins the ecosystem of many servers altogether. After so long, I feel they got their money's worth, no doubt.

    You mentioned showing ranks on the stats page? Where's that?
    The displayment of ranks will be added in the coming days, with some new exciting statistics to be added too (example being to see exactly how many people are in rank C in prison).

    Name Changing Policy (Important)
    Remember that name changing is not automatic with offline servers. When you change your name, the server treats you like a new player. We are not able to transfer everything for everyone, and don't officially support it. Many OPs however will transfer some things, so work with them if you really want to change your name. A one week notice is also needed when changing names, and it is not guaranteed you will get the transfer. For people with paid ranks, be sure to message Rushnett so he can move the rank over to the new account. If you need your forums name changed, you can also message Rushnett, with relevant info to help the process be smoother.


    There are literally so many people to thank that helped make this update happen. I want to personally thank the entire community for staying strong through the hard days, and making it that more fun for everyone here. As for the specifics, the list goes on, but there are a few I want to show recognition on here. Thank you @Hellwind for helping set up prison. Thank you @EnergyCore for organizing the build team for KC1 and helping set up KC1 as well. Thank you @breathesteady for your dedication to setting up PvP and the many hours involved. Thank you @Jbbr and @LilPsychoMi for doing a large part of several spawns (pvp, paintball). Thank you @benz6748 for doing emotional support over league with 10/10 thresh hooks (and also helping with skyblock). Thank you @Funstuff and @Daenarii for organizing and building the current creative spawn. Thank you to all the staff for also making this possible, the server wouldn't be together without them; never have I worked with such a great group of people, even if we run in to troubles every now and then *gives glare*. And thank you everyone, once again, for being such a great community to work with. It's been a blast.


    - Servers -
    Hub - ONLINE
    Creative - ONLINE
    Prison - ONLINE
    Skyblock - ONLINE
    KC1 - ONLINE
    PvP - ONLINE
    Paintball - ONLINE
    Skywars - ONLINE
    Arena - ONLINE
    HSG (Banana) - ONLINE

    Command Help:
    Basics (some are same as usual)
    - The base commands are all the same (/p and /plot).
    - Claim a new plot with /p auto
    - Visit a plot with /p visit <name> #
    - Add a player to plot with /p add <name> (can only build while YOU are online).
    - Add a player to a plot with /p trust <name> (can ALWAYS build on your plot).
    - /p info to see plot info
    - /p h # to go home
    - /p comment <msg> to make a plot comment
    - others should be practically the same


    Merging
    1) Claim two plots next to each other
    2) Stand on one of them, while looking at the other.
    3) Use /plot merge

    Unmerging
    1) Repeat steps 1-2 on merging.
    2) Use /plot unlink
    3) Use /plot confirm

    Thank you for making this happen!

    The struggle will be where do I play first? Do I go to creative where I can build a dank merged plot, prison here I can mine and eventually build a dank merged plot, Skyblock where I can build a dank island, pvp where I can build a dank base and then have it destroyed by hackers, or kc1 where I can build a dank build and then sit around being bored until 1.9

    Jk hub4life

    Thank you Rushnett and Keiaxx for all of the effort and time you've put into making this happen. As a staff member it's great to see the ball rolling so the server will be more lively again, and as a player it's exciting to see how things are going to turn out. I'm sure I speak for the entires community when I say we appreciate everything you two do for us.
